that they should play right into the hands of mitt romney, but he doesn't seem to be taking advantage of it. it suggests, the pulls through, that mr. obama is extending his lead remark there is certainly a lot to you can take issue with. he going to devalue the dollar little further? give tax breaks to companies he is taking credit, he wants to spend more taxpayer money on infrastructure, math and science, ashley, where people who buy it. ashley: what's interesting is that he has managed to frame this, if you like by blaming the rich people who are just not paying their fair share. be gaining some traction. >> we have written a lot about this. it is a claim that he repeated in this advertisement. he said let's reduce the deficit by $4 trillion and raise the taxes on the wealthy. that means nothing in an economy where we would be running more than $1 trillion the annual deficit. mitt romney needs to come out and just do the arithmetic for people. the average american understands state of this economy. the banks on wall street monday doing good,. ashley: case in point. ohio, which is a very i
and anyone for mitt romney is a absolute republican but you mentioned th break in the race. iowa is one of the swing states broken in the president's favor right now by a few points and anything in the bank is value added but if the dynamic changes and you have more undecided voters out there what the obama campaign argues is they have time and resources to those people hard core supporters voted. the romney campaign would say that's an exaggeration and they say republicans are more traditional. they pour the resources at the end. this is a growing and an important national trend and it give your test run if you will to your organization on the ground. >> in iowa city for us mr. magic wall himself john king. thank you. >>> don't forget as we ment watch this first presidential debate in denver colorado. romney versus obama next wednesday 8:00 eastern right here cnn. >>> just in. news from space. we are just getting word of a pretty big discovery on mars. folks, it involves water. that's next. pass pass here's what happened... i was talking to my best friend. i tol
the campaign trail. you see mitt romney right there. it's all about ohio right now. mitt romney behind. he's got to come back. and take a look at this picture. mitt romney like we've never seen before. that was when he was in france as a missionary. remembering his love back home. >> all the way back from the 1960s. >>> also, a real scare in the air. look at this picture. landing gear turned the wrong way. the jet with 190 people onboard, just moments from touching down. why some are calling that landing a miracle. >> happened right here. really was amazing. >> really scary. glad everyone's okay. >>> also on the show, an abc news exclusive interview with j.k. rowling. her new book has been top-secret until now. we'll hear her read it aloud this morning. not an adult novel. a novel for adults. >>> let's get to the headline football fans have been waiting for. the nfl and nfl referees union, reaching a contract agreement overnight, ending that three-month lockout that had replacement refs calling the shots. the official referees will be back on the field tonight. and john muller is here with
politicians wld rather talk about anything but thecy,ndhe w looking at right there, mitt romney, seems to be exhibit 1 in daniel henninger's argument. how does mitt romney turn it around and laser focus on the economy and make the sale next week in time? >> wes goi tbed bee le are feeling a little bit better about thei lives. you know, they've paid off their credit card debts. their 401(k)s are back where they were. you kn, as steve ratner jt showed, their housing prices -- values are goi up. you know wha i wld ds - yo, john mccain very, very successfully made government seem foolish by picking out stupid earmarks. you know, the sgest argument i've seen mitt romney m i , yo know, the government -- the government's regulatory apparatus has bogged down. you know, i would have him go at stupid regulation tricks. you know, there are all tse silly regs that have been paed, u kn,n tls thoused to vote for or vote against, joe. and i think that he has to run against the federal government at this point rather than against the economy. >> willie? >> john? sorry. thout joe was gngoay th i ree wi
, and they're screeching about how the polls are rigged. romney's people know they're in big trouble, right? down about ten in ohio. even the fox news poll shows romney losing in a lot of these swing states. they understand they're in trouble. do they believe they've got a chance to turn it around? >> they do and they do. they know they're in trouble and they -- you know, they have tried a little bit to play the polls or bias game in the last couple days. but pretty half-heartedly as far as i can see. you know, they argue that they're within the margin of error in ohio. a lot of people don't really understand how margin of error works. so you can be pretty far behind and still be within the margin of error because it applies to both candidates. when something says a 4.5% margin of error, they'd have to be nine points apart. they realize they are significantly down in ohio, they're significantly down in the swing states. they know that -- they think that governor romney, the ad yesterday, they were very happy with. they think it was very -- a very effective ad. they think that they're sharpe

general been corrected or removed? no. it has not. it is still right there on mitt romney's campaign web page. and then there's the now-infamous welfare ad from the romney campaign last month. >> president obama quietly ended the work requirement, gutting welfare reform. >> that is not true. that did not happen. president obama did not strip the work requirement out of welfare quietly or otherwise. quite the opposite, in fact. which, again, has been pointed out ad nauseam by political reporters. but the romney campaign's response about getting caught lying about president obama's welfare policies was not to correct or remove the ad, like mitt romney has said has always been done, that ad. been done, that ad is still there on their campaign web page. in fact the campaign responded by telling we're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. when he was asked about the untrue welfare ad. >> any time there's anything that's been amiss we correct it or remove it. the president on the other and. >> even the welfare ad? >> absolutely. it has been shown time and again that the p
's been created by the party for the romney voice to the american people. >> and you're absolutely right, but at the end of the day, people vote for mitt myth. it's going to come down to him being able to communicate a message -- lou: no, no, brad, i understand that. i understand that the republican party continues at this rate, with some of the nonsense coming out of now, home districts rather than capitol hill or from a state for senator, forth with a great view on his own personal foreign policy values, i mean, it's -- this is stuff stuff for the governor to stomach, isn't it? >> it is. when you have a spat with the governor of the important state of ohio as to what the messaging should be, the messaging should be that obama doesn't get the credit for ohio doing well in a bad economy, but it's a republican governor using republican principle, and if i were mitt romney, i would have him out there he heralding the d work he's done as governor. lou: with all of the disasters at the foot of this -- at the feet of this president, i -- i mean, does president obama have any weakness whatsoev
.com. tell us how you want it signed, we'll get it out to you right away. mitt romney in ohio for the last two days with paul ryan. president obama in ohio yesterday. ginger gibson, national political reporter for politico was in ohio with the romney campaign. she's back in d.c. this morning joining us on our news line. hi, ginger good to talk to you. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> bill: so presidential candidate mitt romney in ohio yesterday gets news that in the latest "new york times" cbs poll he is 10 points behind in ohio. here is -- i'm sure you heard it when you were out there. mitt romney's official response. >> romney: well, i'm very pleased with some polls less so with other polls but at this point, polls go up, polls go down. >> bill: what were you hearing from the romney campaign people? >> romney's campaign is picking up the new sort of republican line that we're hearing this year at a lot of the -- that a lot of the polls are being skewed. they're arguing the point that too many democrats
it is the romney campaign loses florida, their chances of winning the 2012 election are close to zero i think. and right now this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead in florida by several points, according to the latest polls. if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, we look at the patter of support among groups like the white working-class where again you see the best group for romney, mccain carried in by 17 points in 2008. we look at the breakout and we are not seeing any progress being made among these voters. we are not saying a noticeably bigger margin among white working-class voters for the gop candidate. it's not happening. the margins look to be pretty similar to what they were in 2008. so by and large not much progress is being made by the romney campaign. in virginia we see again some demographic change happening there on the right with white working-class going down and white college graduates going up. and again in virginia, the key to virginia for romney would have been to widen the margin that you be candidate was going to get among
number 1 is the economy. many americans believe it's heading in the right direction. mitt romney has been relentlessly pounding president obama about the economy. he did it again today in ohio. >> i don't believe we can afford four more years like the past four years. >> maybe they haven't been happy the last four years. maybe they were disappointed with obama, but generally, they think we're on the right path. >> reporter: we found people at union square willing to discuss the merits of both candidates. >> he's been president for four years, and we haven't seen the turn around that he had promised. i'm not sure why the numbers aren't correlating to his performance? >> reporter: some republicans aren't buying the latest poll results. >> i don't think the election is over by any way shape or form. i think it's going to go down to the wire. >> reporter: next week's debate may be critical for romney. >> you have to get people at your side. the debate is key. >> reporter: corey cook says the bar is actually low for romney. >> he really needs to have a positive debate performance, where he app

. that is not being taken into account in a lot of these polls. but doug is right to say that we have to deal in reality, and reality is obama may not have this kind of substantial lead but he certainly is leading. i think team romney now understands that. we're five weeks away from the campaign, from the election, rather, and what you're seeing from the romney campaign is a real focus. five weeks away. obama is leading. by at least a little bit anyway, if not tied. so this really does focus the romney team's mind. martha: which brings up a great point, doug. psychologically, what is the impact of seeing these numbers which we have all been used to seeing neck-and-neck throughout the process? you suddenly see these big swings where looks like president obama is leading by a lot. it does a couple things. it may motivate and put fire under the romney campaign but also may make democrats overconfident. >> well, i think it also could, well create some enthusiasm for the democrats. that's not a partisan statement. martha: could be. >> it could also, martha, and this is something that i think monic
